The Talic Kayak Tilt Storage Racks are an elegant solution to storing the kayaks. Does a great job of distributing the boats weight.
I got these because they are used to mount kayaks on an interior wall and the appearance is important. The wood was unfinished, so I first applied 2 coats of clear coating to protect the wood. The arms are made of 3/8" thick wood. Although it supports the boats adaquately, they should have be thicker to stand up to the side loads that occur when the boats are being loaded. I am satisfied, but the product needs improvement.
I purchased this rack to display a kayak in my office. It was very easy to install and mount. I think it is an excellent rack for display or storage. FYI - The picture on the website shows 3 holes for adjustment on top where the strap attaches. Mine came with only one hole and a shorter wire bracket, but was not an issue.
The straps were incorrectly sized for the device designed to hold the straps, creating a "bunching effect." There was also a bolt length discrepancy in one pair of the hole locations, as well as a questionable routed recess location that needs to be addressed as well. Modified the product myself and very happy with its performance.
